Apple Patents New Screen Technology Which Enables Them To Create Thinner Devices

Apple has been granted a patent which is about a new screen technology. In this patent apple manged to combine the digitizer (the touch sensitive element) and the LCD panel so that the panel can be even thinner. Currently the digitizer is place above the LCD panel which also means a thicker panel. With this new patent apple may be able to create thinner devices. Here is a some more info on this new patent: 

Disclosed herein are liquid-crystal display (LCD) touch screens that integrate the touch sensing elements with the display circuitry. The integration may take a variety of forms. Touch sensing elements can be completely implemented within the LCD stackup but outside the not between the color filter plate and the array plate. Alternatively, some touch sensing elements can be between the color filter and array plates with other touch sensing elements not between the plates. In another alternative, all touch sensing elements can be between the color filter and array plates. The latter alternative can include both conventional and in-plane-switching (IPS) LCDs. In some forms, one or more display structures can also have a touch sensing function. Techniques for manufacturing and operating such displays, as well as various devices embodying such displays are also disclosed.
